Converge Stories Podcast

Welcome to YWAM Converge where we know that everyone has a calling; following the crowd will not bring transformation, and a personalized missions project is the best way to discover your purpose. Hear testimonies of students, missional leaders, and donors engaged in sending a new generation of missionaries. YWAM Converge is part of Youth With A Mission, an international, multi-denominational movement of people who follow Jesus and want to know God and make him known.

Allan Carrington is a YWAMer and educator. He started as a printer who was called into missions with the prophetic vision to publish good news. He was a Learning Designer at the University of Adelaide for 10 years. He is an Apple Distinguished Educator and has won two major teaching awards. He has two Masters degrees in Education and Interactive Multimedia. He now runs Designing Outcomes helping educational initiatives around the world. 

Allan and I met at a YWAM conference on the Amazon in 1993. He has ministered at Olympic Games in Atlanta and Sydney. His story takes us on an adventure from Australia to Kona, Hawaii, to Texas, Paraguay, Brazil, Indonesia, China, Ukraine, and Slovenia. His story of following Jesus into the sphere of education and media will inspire you and challenge you to consider new ways to learn and perhaps challenge you to pursue God’s dream to make disciples of all nations.

Allan's advice is to "take a break", "step back and focus on the character of God." He encourages us to listen closely to God's voice, which often comes in spontaneous thought.
